Voyaging with Stella Jean from Brazil to West Africa at MFW

Travel is evidently the epitome of my life.

Which is why, when Stella Jean portrayed a multicultural travel trip from West Africa’s Benin to Brazil via her threads of fashion, I was ecstatic. What started with a video of her travels slowly transitioned into Italian made bohemian style designs in muted yet colorful tones that were tantalizing to watch and voyage through. Yours truly showed up in my own Print All Over Me jacketย and Prada eyewear, right after a few other events in Milano at the iconic Milan Fashion Week (MFW).

The signature oversized shirts were paired with bohemian, floral and folk art skirts, with some that were high waist, and others lined with ruffles. Long and Eastern style sleeves embelished many tops, often paired with maxi skirts, embroidered shirts and blouses and architecturally constructed sandals! I most enjoyed the motifs of fauna and flora, reminiscent to African and Brazilian nature, often embroidered or beautifully hand painted on tapestries of skirts, with one large parrot on a plain white overall being quite striking, as well as a traditional ‘kanga’ print on many skirts and linings. One particularly voluminous skirt was literally like a work of art. With a nod to my travel zealousness and a reflection of my own multicultural personality, I resonated well with the sensibilities and thought that went into this passionately created lineup.
